, michigan senator carl levin, and tim ryan, a member of the house from ohio. both of you come from districts representing auto workers. had term do you use, senator? >> we saved the auto industry. the president helped save the auto industry. it was critically important that that be done. a million jobs have been saved. no auto-producing country in the world did not support its auto industry during this recession. the idea that we would let it go under and the romney statement, "let detroit go bankrupt," his definition of bankruptcy meant real bankruptcy, not just restructuring. it's going to hurt him in michigan and ohio what he has said about letting the auto industry go under. i think it will hurt him in the country. i find the reaction to that slogan-- imported from detroit-- having an amazing impact everywhere in the country, by the way. when that commercial hit that chrysler put on, it brought pride-- not just to michigan, not just to ohio. i'm telling you, i found it all over the country. >> ifill: congress, i want you to ask you to tell your story. >> it's an amazing story.

speech last night, not just from obama lovers. even some conservatives say mrs. obama nailed it. carl rose said it was a very well delivered speech. a master ful showing, one that delivered a not so subtle message. i love my husband and he's nothing like mitt romney. >> barack knows what it means when a family struggles. he knows what it means to want something more for your kids and grandkids. barack knows the american dream because he lived it. and he wants everyone in this country, everyone, to have the same opportunity no matter who we are or where we're from or what we look like or who we love. [ applause ] >> she was so good, there is even talk of her running for office. michelle obama, 2016? >> you heard some great speeches, and that one by the first lady is going to be hard. barack obama is a good speech giver but that one will be hard to top. if there is an open ballot, now would be a good time to sign up. >> twitter exploded with 20,000 tweets per minute, nearly double that of mitt romney and also the president's speech at state of the union. who knows? maybe michelle obama
